JaDa – Day 57

It was a normal routine day, except that Divya had plans to make lunch for her lab mates, Tadamori, Takato and Hung. And I was glad to join too. It was nice to see the care with which she was making the chicken. I did my part too, making rice 😛 Thoughtfully, we had also packed pickle, just in case if the curry doesn’t feel spicy enough! It was amazing to see them struggle trying to eat with hand. And more fun to see Divya teach them to hold a morsel with fingers. Never would I have imagined such a sight, as using fingers to eat is the most obvious thing for an Indian. Spoons and forks are what you get trained for, never for hands!

Japan hasn’t given me cultural shocks, really. But there’s been a great lot of cultural ‘Wow!’ moments. The one today is very distinct, among the many such!
